Kerala gold smuggling case: M Sivasankar arrives at NIA office for interrogation in Kochi

M Sivasankar, who is the former principal secretary of Kerala Chief Minister reached National Investigation Agency (NIA) office in Kochi for interrogation on July 28.

He was questioned by NIA officials for over 9 hours on July 27 as well.

He is being interrogated in Kerala gold smuggling case.

According to the investigation, Sivasankar shared close proximity with the key accused in the gold smuggling cases, Swapna Suresh and Sarith PS.

The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on July 24 had submitted before a special NIA court that around Rs 1 crore cash and 982.5 grams gold ornaments were seized from two bank lockers of accused Swapna Suresh, a former consultant with the state's IT department.

The matter, which pertains to the smuggling of gold in the state through diplomatic channels, had come to light after 30 kg of gold worth Rs 14.82 crores, smuggled in a consignment camouflaged as diplomatic baggage, was busted by customs in Thiruvananthapuram last month.
